COUNCIL ACTION
Work Session:     06/04/2019
SUMMARY
The City of Danville is a participating jurisdiction under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Under this designation, the City receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investments Partnership Program (HOME) funds annually.  A prerequisite for the City to receive CDBG and HOME funds, is the development of a Five Year Consolidated Plan and One Year Annual Action Plan.  Basic goals of the Plan are: 1) decent housing, 2) suitable living environment, and 3) expanded economic opportunities.  All funded activities must address one or more national objectives: benefit low- to moderate-income persons, aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight, or meet an urgent community need for which no other funds are available.
BACKGROUND
A new five-year 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, which includes a one-year Action Plan, has been prepared specifying projects and activities that will be funded in the upcoming year(s).  A large majority of the CDBG funds have historically been used for neighborhood revitalization efforts, and it is proposed to continue focusing on this effort in the 2019-2020 Plan.  In addition, there is a public service category which can be funded up to 15% of the annual allocation, that provides funding to assist non-profit organizations to carry out programs that benefit low- to moderate-income individuals and/or households.  The total amount available in the category for the year is $129,677.  In the past, many of the same outside agencies have been funded under this category, however, this year the agencies were selected through a request for proposal process in accordance with HUD's guidelines.  The City anticipates a total budget of $1,211,757 for Fiscal Year 2019-2020, comprised of $864,447 CDBG funds, $248,310 HOME funds, and $99,000 estimated program income generated from loan repayments and the sale of houses currently under City's lease-to-purchase program.  The proposed uses of funds for next fiscal year are described in the attachments, excluding those that will fall under the Public Services category.  A Public Hearing on the Action Plan is advertised for City Council’s June 18, 2019 meeting.  The deadline for submittal to HUD is July 1, 2019.  The public review period was 14-days in accordance with HUD CPD Notice 16-18 and included review by the Housing & Development Advisory Committee.  

The City has prepared a five year Consolidated Plan (2020-2024).  The comment period is 30 days and will begin May 27, 2019-June 27, 2019.


 
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt the attached Resolution approving the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and  2019-2020 HUD one-year Action Plan.
